Thanks to Axe this week! Also, we're halfway through STEPtember, where I am walking 10,000 steps every day in support of people living with Cerebral Palsy. It's been quite a challenge, with lots of long evening walks to squeeze the steps in after work. But I'm getting it done, and if you'd like to support the charity, you can sponsor me here. Thanks!

Retro Let's Play and Retro Racing September 2021 (0 Comments) (link)
 Sunday, 5-September-2021  18:17:08 (GMT +10) - by Agg

This month's Retro Let's Play is Espgaluda from 2003. This genre can be very rough on the uninitiated. My first exposure to the genre was with Ikaruga and Progear and while these are great games, they aren't fun to start out with. Espgaluda is considered to be one of the easiest games released by the developer Cave who along with companies like Treasure, Raizing and Psikyo (to name a few) are the main pioneers of this genre. Espgaluda is a vertical shooter released in 2003 for Arcade and PS2 (It plays perfectly in MAME). It is technically a sequel to the 1988 ESP.Ra.De.

Or maybe racing is more your style - this month's Retro Racing game is Fatal Racing AKA Whiplash from 1995. In Fatal Racing the player picks among a broad selection of cars and drives through tracks with loops, corkscrews, and jumps while trying to smash into other cars to destroy them and at the same time cross the finish line first. There is a variety of different camera views available in the game, "in-car", chase-cam, etc. Multiplayer is supported by IPX/SPX network and modem, in addition, a split screen option is also available.
